The dark of night shrouds the face of a stranger in a lifeboat as he floats a few yards from a couple of becalmed sailors at sea. Across the still waters, he shares his eerie tale in a story by William Hope Hodgson.
The Midnight Reading is a special series of dramatic readings of lost classics from the world of macabre fiction that have inspired our show, Fireside Mystery Theatre. We hope to encourage you, dear listeners, to embrace the joy of books and to build your own collection of dark literature.
